Alberta Agriculture wants your worms — cutworms, that is. In an effort to map out changing populations of various cutworms and to pinpoint cutworm feeding in new areas or at non-traditional times of the year, the Canola Council of Canada in concert with various provincial pest monitoring agencies and research scientists are asking for cutworm samples. Scott Meers, Provincial entomologist with Alberta Agriculture & Rural Development, is actively involved in the research project.
